What are you listening to?
As far as new music I’m really into (as always) raw guitars, upfront vocals, angular baselines and heavy drumming. A bit of old school rock in roll/blues with a touch of mis-guided-first-world-punk. Crate-diving as usual for vinyl-gems, but I’m also listening to a lot of new emerging soul. Trying to find the few that nail it. It’s literally coming now from all around the world. When I hear it work, I get shivers. It’s rare when all of the elements come to play at once, but it’s happening far beyond any blurred lines. This new-soul-wave continues to bleed into popular genres like R&B/Hip-Hop (Weeknd / Kendrick Lamar), Rock (Gary Clark Jr), Roots (The Alabama Shakes) and because we live in a remix culture, everything that’s half-worthy of a double-spin is made into a remix and often those are even better than the originals (Bruno Mars Cash Cash ‘Treasure’ remix). I find these web of tunes fairly easy to place on television and in films. Timeless is a good sound to have for sync. Who wants a dated film. Despite being one of the finest actors on the planet, try watching a Judge Reinhold film today. Dated music kills potentially classic films. 😉 … Bottom line here is that Soul, has fucking soul!!! Use is it or lose it.
